New blog post @ Every Cat… Isis ~ Egyptian Goddess of Family & Loyalty
Tarot for Grownups ~ (Review)
This 126 page tarot how-to was probably one of the most entertaining books on the great 78 I have read in awhile. The author and her unique storytelling style held me captivated right from jump. She told it like it was and thought out of the box when it came to the meaning of the cards. It was like sitting down with someone over coffee as they explained the inner workings of the tarot. She absolutely delightfully is not by the book and it just felt so real and refreshing. I would recommend this special helper to anyone looking for an out of the box approach to divination. Thanks Amythyst, you do so rock, I will never look at the tarot quite the same way again.Love & Light, Riki Frahmann
My book The Spiritual Feminist is ranked #170 in the Goddess category at Amazon right now… Not too shabby! Woot!
I stumbled upon this information by accident today when I was updating my FB pages. The numbers at Amazon are in a constant state of flux and change, so I don’t really keep track of this information intentionally, but I might pay closer attention now. This book has its own Facebook page (as all of my books do): https://www.facebook.com/thespiritualfeminist?ref=hl
“So many people throughout my life have told me who I am, what I must do, what I can’t do, what I have to complete, and what I will never be able to accomplish, and then I met the Goddess.” (From The Spiritual Feminist) …The Spiritual Feminist empowers today’s modern woman through the Goddess, connecting her to ancient matriarchal divinity and spiritual practices which invoke this energy.

Crafting Your Magic:
Free yourself of those things that bind you, bind those things you need freedom from. Cast spells for release, relief, and emancipation; but make sure that you are not unintentionally restricting someone else’s freedoms with your magic, your expectations, or your emotions– such as jealousy. Remember, your thoughts are pure energy and can set magical vibrations into motion.
Opposite energies are flying high during the Snow Moon. Use the vibrations generated from this energy to your advantage– remember that “opposites attract”. Protection magic cast during this time is especially effective and potent.

To order your copy,
Thank you to Vivienne Moss for a wonderful review!
“There is much wisdom and enchantment to be found in The Spiritual Feminist. The amount of information revealed will be welcomed by anyone wanting to travel along the Goddess Path. Amythyst Raine-Hatayama has poured her heart and soul into this charming book and I hope to read more from this wisdom-filled author. I sense this will make a remarkable companion book to Naming the Goddess and many other volumes on Goddess Spirituality…”
My daughter picked me up this morning for a round of shopping and lunch– and I took The Book with us (The Spiritual Feminist). This was a Hoot!! Following are photos of our jaunt, the places we went, and the people we saw…Welcome to Fremont, Nebraska (USA)!
Fremont Police Station
Okay– ‘nough running around. Everyone was getting hungry and foot weary (yes, that’s a real thing). We finished off our outing– where? At McDonald’s…of course!
The Official Release Date for The Spiritual Feminist
is April 24th!!
Thank you to my daughter, Laura Thome, for the photography!
This is such a monumental event in a writer’s life, the Release of a Book…it is akin to giving birth, and there’s almost as much chaos and hoopla leading up to it.
I posted a while ago on Facebook about the Book Launch Party tonight for The Spiritual Feminist. I’m looking forward this evening to fun with family and friends– some picture taking for my publicist!– and good food and drink. Thank you to my daughter, Anne, who had a special cake made for the evening– it’s designed after the Book of Shadows in the movie Practical Magic (and I’ll bet this is a first for the ladies here at Hy-Vee’s Bakery in Fremont NE!)
Happy Sunday, everyone!!
BOOK Launch Party!!
Sunday, April 12th, 6pm
Applebee’s Restaurant, 3420 Elk Lane, Fremont NE

“You see him; you want him; you make a conscious decision to get him…does this violate the “Harm None” creed of the Wiccan Rede? Does this violate your personal ethics? What about the target’s free will? I can hear these questions reverberating through the universe…”
From Moon Books:

“What makes this book unique? The world of the gray witch has been largely avoided, misrepresented, or glossed over with various books geared gingerly towards ‘protection magic’. These books, though informative and well written as they may be, have totally missed the spirit of the gray witch – who she really is, how she relates to the world of shadow and light, and exactly what she’s willing to do to stand her ground. In our society ‘dark’ is automatically viewed as ‘evil’; and ‘light’ is automatically viewed as ‘good’. We’re expected to live completely within one realm and to totally avoid the other. This creates imbalance and is a great injustice to the true spirit of the ancient wise woman. This book puts matters to right and gives the public a view of just what the gray witch is – and what she isn’t. The gray witch does not live in a world of chaos or unbridled black magic. She has a code of honor, a sense of propriety, and a relevance in today’s society.”
With “The Gray Witch’s Grimoire” you can empower yourself through ancient mysteries, secret rites, and magickal spells that leave the world of the mundane behind and nurture the wise-woman in us all.
